Sizing & fit for hair loss hats


We manufacture many of our styles in our studio in Westcott, this means we can make them in S, M, and L sizes.  The 'High St.' manufactures to a regular head fitting (56cms), so if you are experiencing problems getting hats to fit or hats to stay on, we can make for you.  (Small and large sizes are kept as stock items in many of our styles.)  We request that you enter your head measurement when ordering and we will 'size' the order before dispatching it to you.  Our hats are hand made and hand finished, so there is always some slight variation between milliners!

Before placing your order please measure your head fitting by placing a tape measure ‘red indian’ style around your forehead. (Place the tape measure just over your eyebrows at the front and ensure the measure goes round the bump at the back of your head i.e the widest part of your head front to back.) If you like to wear your hats looser don't 'compensate' with the measurement - we group head fittings within the S, M and L categories and all our hats are made from stretch fabrics, so there is 2-3 cms flexibility around your actual head measurment size.

As the Suburban Turban range is made up of soft Lycra jersey that hugs the head, most head shapes can be accommodated. With the flexibility and give in our products, common issues that appear with structured hats just don’t happen with our female hair loss headwear. For example, if you have a more oval shaped head then you may have experienced gapping around the head fitting at the sides. Our hats will simply mould to your head shape.

If you have concerns about taking your head fitting please give us a call on 0845 003 2800 and we'll talk you through it.  You don't necessarily need a tape measure - a piece of string will do, if you can then measure it with a ruler!

If you are between sizes in the above chart, choose the bigger size.  Please bear in mind that our styles are made from stretch fabrics so they are already cut smaller to stretch.  So by going up a size they won't fall off easily, or appear too big or loose.  The hat will simply have a more flattering fullness around the face, as the fabric will not be stretched as tightly around your head.

If the hat you received does not fit, please recheck your size and email us at nicky@suburbanturban.co.uk this is the quickest way to let us know you are sending it back and we can exchange it for a better fit. Hats returned in unused condition with all tags in place can be returned or refunded within 14 days of purchase.
